    Collected today with 23miles on the clock. Some of you might know me from the A3 forum and know that my vehicles don't stay stock very long.

    Car was collected with the ship wrap still on it. To the dealership that zero prep was to be completed, my detailer is booked.

    Hi Alix. Looks good, the roof bars & bag come standard with the SQ5, at least that's what the dealer told me with mine before it went for my ''as you know'' RS6.

    Hi Alix - where are you getting your running boards from? OEM or aftermarket?

    Genuine OEM and turned up today :) The boxes were MASSIVE so here are the parts minus the boxes where are now in the recycling:)

    IMG_0053.jpg

    The dealership I purchased the vehicle from wanted £1500 to supply and fit the same. With my trade discount these were working out approx £700. I found an Audi dealership offering these for £600 or best offer on eBay. I managed to secure these for £500 with delivery :) If interested send me a PM and will send you the listing as they have 2 sets left.

    Dealer never mentioned this but you are most likely correct as these are not cheap and would not just be forgotten in the boot.

    Retrofit wise am looking at Active TPMS, Running Boards and Memory Seats parts are all on order. Matrix Lights would follow together with 360 camera and Night Vision. Am currently in talks with MTM re an M-Cantronic also.

    They do come with the Q5, as they did with the 8R version. I still have a set in my shed

    The car looks amazing!! Can’t wait to see what you’re going to get up to with it! I remember you mentioned you liked the SQ5. How does it feel compared to your old storm trooper A3 ?

    Easy to drive as it doesn't feel big, effortless power, a very different animal to my A3. Loving it so far but I am missing the A3 is it was such a great car.

    I agree, the Q2, 3 and 5 don’t have a particularly high ride height...doesn’t feel to different to a non SUV. I think that’s why some people prefer the Range/Land Rovers, higher seating position. The only exemption I’d say is the Q7...that’s just a beast. I’m glad you’re enjoying it and I’ll be watching out for your 360 camera retrofit!!

    When I collected the vehicle it still had the deliver wrap on it. I took with of at the dealership in order to make sure there was no damage etc and then drove the vehicle home and it has not moved since. Today my dealer came over and spent the day getting the vehicle ready for winter, all sealed up with gTechniq etc etc

    Yesterday I spent all day installing the Autowatch Ghost II. Yup, took me all day, not because I did not know what I was doing but because I wanted to bury the device deep in the vehicle where no one would find it let alone be able to remove it :)

    I installed the Thinkware Q800Pro 2CH System over the weekend just gone, complete with external iVolt battery in the rear of the vehicle.

    UIMG_0174.jpg UIMG_0169.jpg IMG_0180.jpg

    Next up... Active TPMS and Running Boards.
